Last Chance To Claim March 2022’s Games With Gold
Xbox Live Gold members know that it’s the last chance they have to download the old batch of Games With Gold games before a new batch rolls in. Here are the free games you can claim as part of your subscription before April 1st.
For Xbox One games, The Flame In The Flood is an excellent survival game that sees players journeying on foot and via a raft going downriver, exploring an alternative version of America. The wilderness is dangerous and out to get you, but with the right tools and resources, you’ll be able to survive whatever nature throws at you.
Games With Gold also includes two Xbox 360 games each month, which rotate halfway through the month. Right now, players can download SpongeBob’s Truth or Square,a platforming game based on the SpongeBob SquarePants episode of the same name. Players use Plankton’s memory machine to explore different moments in the history of SpongeBob in order to recover the lost Krabby Patty formula. If you’ve got kids, get this downloaded for them.
While it’ll still be available until April 15th, this is also a good time to claim Street Power Soccer, an action-packed arcadey take on the beautiful game. Street Power Soccer features over-the-top moves, powers, and arenas, making for one of the most outlandish football games you can play on Xbox.
